flight controller (drone)

A flight controller is an electronic control unit for drones.

The flight controller evaluates the inputs from the gyro sensors, the acceleration sensors, the positioning signals from the GPS system, the camera signals and the signals from the ultrasonic sensors and uses them to calculate the position of the drone and its flight movement. The processed data is used for the electronic speed control of the brushless DC motors and provides for the desired pitch axis, as well as the rolling and turning with which the drone should move during the flight movement.
